June is around the corner and the temperatures are rising in Andalusia. A new month means a new line up of celebrations you cannot miss on your trip to the South of Spain.

The Feria madness continues in June in Marbella from June 6th until the 12th, celebrating Feria de San Bernabe. Before the Feria starts off, there’s a King and Queen contest in the weekend prior to it. Sunday at midnight the fireworks go off, which means the Feria can start.

Like other Feria’s you can enjoy the beautifully decorated horse carriages and well-dressed women during the day and some great food and dancing when the sun goes down. However, this particular Feria has two Feria...

Traveling with kids is always a little different. It forces you to put aside those serious museums and look for fun and interactive ways to fill in your itinerary.

We made a selection of things to see and do in Sevilla that won’t leave the kids disappointed.

Go visit the Real Alcazar de Sevilla

Summer is around the corner and it’s time to start planning your summer holidays. There’s many reasons why Andalusia is an attractive destination, many of which have to do with the SUN! However, it do gets hot here in summer, so a little help in building your itinerary is going to optimize your trip A LOT!  To make most out of your travels through our beautiful region in the south of Spain, we listed some beaches, activities and festivals you cannot miss this summer.

Follow the bike routes in Andalusia

May is coming up and that only means one thing: a new calendar! April was an amazing month with so much to do. For those who were in Sevilla during the Feria we’re guessing it was month that’ll not be forgotten anytime soon. But fear not, May also has a lot of special events to offer. The summer fairs continue and to be honest, you could go in almost any direction in Andalusia this month and still encounter a feria without even planning it.

Nevertheless, we yet again made a list of those that should DEFINITELY be on your ‘to visit’-list this month.

We ended April’s calendar with Crosses of May, the World People’s Fair  and the H...

Here we are again with a new neigbourhood guide of Sevilla. This time around we’ll be exploring the somewhat posher area of the city, El Porvenir. A small neighbourhood next to the Maria Luisa Park and Plaza the España. The main reason why you’d want to visit this area is if you like Andalusian architecture and the typical houses. El Porvenir features some well-known as well as lesser known villas that are well worth gazing at.

One of the oldest buildings in the neighbourhood is the one on the boarder of El Porvenir, right across the park on Avendida de Borbolla, is El Cuartel de Ingenieros, or translated as the engineer’s headquarters. This building was built in 1901 in romantic a...

Los Remedios is a residential area in Seville. It is made up out of apartment buildings and wide straight streets, which is something quite rare in this city with its narrow and windy streets. The district is completely different than other parts of Seville, and while you may say it lacks the charm other neighbourhoods have, you can find some GREAT food here and do some good shopping too. Definitely an interesting stop for the foodlovers aka foodies among us.

Cata 50

Cata 50 is a restaurant close to the Plaza de Cuba metro stop. On the menu you can find traditional food with a modern touch, a blend o...

It’s been a while since we highlighted a different city than Sevilla and we feel like it’s time to change that. Cordoba is a great trip to do when you’re coming to Sevilla, it’s a city with a lot to offer and we recommend spending at least one or two days there when you’re in Andalusia.

We have some tips for those who like to plan their trip ahead, because some things MUST be on your things-to-see-list!

Visit the Mezquita

To come straight to it, the Mezquita is the one thing you absolutely cannot miss when you visit Cordoba, or shall I say, when you visit Andalusia. This cathedral has switched between religious purposes from a catholic church, to a m...

Bordering the Real Alcazar de Sevilla and the Plaza de España, San Bernardo is a small neighbourhood right outside the city centre. What might not seem like much due to its surrounding residential apartment buildings, might just surprise you once you pass those. The neighbourhood might even be a good fallout base for your stay due to its peaceful and children-friendly character, while still having some of the city’s most important monuments at a short walking distance. Here’s our reasons why:

The parks for a moment to relax:

While the preperations for Semana Santa are still in full force, we are already thinking ahead for the people visiting Andalusia in April. Even though Semana Santa is the most important week of the year for catholic Andalusia, the most festive month of the year is definitely April. In April the summer fairs start in Andalusia with ‘Feria de Abril’ or the April Fairs.

When traveling through Andalusia during this month, you are likely to encounter many processions and celebrations, but the highlight of the month is without a doubt Feria de Sevilla!

This year the Feria de Sevilla will take place from April 12-17th, two weeks after Semana Santa....
